12 days old and wanting to eat every hour

It's very common. My son wanted to eat every hour since his 1st day, because I didn't have enough milk for him, I tried to pump every 2 hours but just got may be 1 oz. My milk supply increased dramatically when he turned 1 month. I knew he wasn't starving because he was gaining his weight ok. So, don't worry if your newborn treats breastfeeding like a 24-7 all-you-can-eat buffet.

    Their cluster nursing in the evening too was always baffling at first until I realized they would sleep longer stretches. My sister says her little one is already doing the cluster nursing and sleeping from 11pm-5am ...sounds like my little niece is a gem of a baby and a champion nurser! :)

      Cluster nursing is when they nurse every hour right after dinner and then sleep for a long stretch at night.
